Thanks dynachrome. Years ago such a maze, long forgotten and undetected, was rediscovered near a major pre-Roman site. Obviously, due to the antiquity and total lack of contemporary written records from even Roman times, there's not much way to figure out how such sites were originally used, irrespective of the way they may have been used during the Middle Ages. :')
The various old dance forms (which have survived mostly in one form, the Square Dance) are likewise very old. The Morris Dance was conducted on purpose-built level grass platforms, called Morris floors. These were so egregiously pagan that Oliver Cromwell banned the dancing and destroyed these floors wherever possible.
Another pagan survival is the maypole dance.
